Ideas generated by members of the public at the recent ‘Galway Visioning Day’ in Scoil Chroí Íosa Presentation Primary School will now be compiled to produce a document describing a sustainable community vision for Galway.
The public event on 6 April was the first stage in the production of an action plan for a more sustainable Galway by 2030.
The event was organised by Transition Galway, a local grassroots organisation and one of thousands of Transition projects around the world aiming to build resilient communities and local economies to deal with the challenges of reduced oil supplies and climate disruption.
‘Galway Visioning Day’ involved gathering feedback and ideas from the public and local interest groups and those present had an opportunity to express their vision of a healthy, sustainable and resilient future for Galway city.
The next step will involve bringing together all of the ideas generated on the day in a document describing a sustainable community vision for Galway. Similar plans have been produced for Kinsale, Co. Cork and Totnes in England. Last Saturday’s event will be followed by smaller gatherings on specific topics in order to lead to immediate voluntary and entrepreneurial projects that will work towards creating a more sustainable Galway.
